Mondays with Marcus #MondaysWithMarcus

Hagerstown, MD

Personal blog alert!

One of the best things I love about raising my 5-year-old son Marcus is that we get to spend lots of time together.  In a world gone crazy, It is one of the best gifts that Shonoi and I can give him. Some of my most fond memories of my father and I were with him driving me to and from school. These were when we had conversations about life. I believe that those interactions help make me into the man I am today.  Fast forward 30+ years and I'm raising my son in what feels like a whole different world. The years of innocents are so short! The mind so delicate and fragile! What a high calling! The calling to step up to the challenge of raising, training, educating your child to be successful in this life and the life to come.  We understand that homeschooling is not for every parent. Frankly, some people are not equipped to take on such a task, they may need a break outside of the house, and others may not be in a position to financially pull it off. The reasons are endless. Thanks be to GOD that Shonoi and I are able to stagger our work schedules to make this happen.  On Mondays I homeschool Marcus. I hope to share more about our interactions on Instagram using the hashtag #MondaysWithMarcus

New Years Eve at Pulse Cafe

Hadley, Massachusetts

We had the pleasure of visit Pulse Cafe and visiting our friends there for New Years Eve 2017.  They "are a 100% plant-based cafe committed to creating life-giving, artful, and delicious food from the abundance of seed-to-leaf." We visited family and friends first in Harrisburg, PA, then New York and lastly shoot up 2 hours north to Hadley, MA to end 2017.  It was a wonderful experience and the food was amazing.  I had the Greek Artisan Woodfired Pizza, Shonoi had the 'Chckn" and waffles, and Marcus had the Pulse Scramble which is tofu scrabble, sauteed kale, roasted potatoes, sausage, and a side of toast.  If you are in the southern Massachusetts area you definitely need to check them out and enjoy some delicious food which happens to also be healthy.  

So what we like most about Pulse Cafe:

  •  Ample Parking Spaces
  • Inviting atmosphere
  • Friendly staff
  • Beautiful ambience
  • The Market area (which allowed us to grab a few WayFare products that we have been hearing good things about. We purchased the carib pudding, salted butter and cream cheese, all plant based of course).
  • And definitely the delicous Vegan Food. 

 

Faith, Hope, & Love. Happy 2018!

This young man was playing some beautiful Hymns on his #Violin in the #Subway of #NYC.  I gave him one of the best books ever written second to the #Bible in my humble opinion: The #GreatControversy by #EllenWhite and a few #bucks as well. There is nothing like beautiful music in a subway setting to take the mind away while waiting for the #IronHorses.  #Hustle #Musician #UndergroundMusic #CollegeStudent
